      Immigrant: Came in "Fortune" (the 1st ship to New England after the Mayflower) in 1621. Lived in Plymouth, Marshfield, and Duxbury, Massachusetts

      Notes from Jean Covington Westcott.
      Name originally Edouad Bompasse in the Plymouth colony, was the first of his name, and the only one of this name as far as can be found to arive in the country. the name has taken on various spellings as follows: Bumpas, Bumpass, Bump, Bumpers, Bumps and Bumpus. Edouad came as a young man on the ship "Fortune" the first ship after the Mayflower. The ship Fortune arrived at Plymouth, now Massachusetts on Nov. 10, 1621. The name Bompasse is probably of French origin, possibly Hugenot. The old Norman and French name Bonpas literally translated Goodstep, is an aristocratic name in Europe. The Bonpas family originated in Perpignam in the exstreme southwestern portion of France. The name probably came to England with the Normans, and perhaps again with the Hugenots.
      In 1623 He received one share in the land allotment as one of those who came in the Fortune and in 1627 a share in cattle, indicating he was unmarried. He sold his acre of land on the north side of town in 1628 and was granted 20 acres of land on Duxbury Bay where he settled and built a house. After 1656 he seems to have lost control of his properties and through lack of cooperation in the family, he and his wife, Hannah, were to some extent dependent upon the community for their well being.
      Edward and Hannah had at least twelve children, eight being recorded at Marshfield. There may have been a thirteenth. Some question if Faith was really a first child. Some researchers show that she was born in 1630. Others say that she may have been a twin to Sarah, who died at birth or shortly after.
